A Garden of National Significance, this large country garden of trees, seasonal colour and diversity in landscaping, features a fine collection of exotic deciduous broadleaf and coniferous trees.

The visitor experience includes fern gullies, waterfalls, ponds, suspension bridge, forest trails, native birds, and carpets of bluebells. Qualmark 4-star hosted accommodation enhances this special place.
